How does it work if we book with you?
Before any signing of contracts we’ll meet in person or over Skype for a chat so we can get to know each other. Once the contract is signed I’ll take a retainer fee of 25% which must be paid within 14 days of signing the contract in order for me to secure your date. We can then have a look round the venue to find the perfect spots for photos (entirely optional). Photography/videography guide including all the shots you have asked for (if there’s anything specific you want let me know) and all the shots that I recommend. Remaining balance must be paid 30 days before your wedding and this can be paid in monthly instalments. I’m always available to listen and chat!
Are you insured?
Do you have back up gear?
Of course… I wouldn’t want anything to go wrong on your special day so I always come prepared for the worst. I have several batteries and memory cards to keep everything backed up throughout the day.
What kit do you use?
I use a professional Nikon camera for both photo and video along with various lenses. I also have a GoPro and a tripod.
Do you offer photo and video packages as a combination?
Yes! If you would like to book me for both photo and video then please get in touch. The best thing about booking me for both is that you know there isn’t going to be any tension between the photographer and videographer on your special day. All you have to do is pick your photo and video package and because you’re booking both with me you’ll receive 10% off!
Now I obviously can’t do photo and video at the same time but don’t worry, my trusted colleague who has also shot multiple wedding videos will come along with me to film while I take the photos. Once the day is over, I’ll take all the video footage and edit the video myself in my signature style.
How would you describe your style of photography?
Relaxed, unobtrusive and documentary. You won’t even notice me there on your special day. I prefer not to interfere as I want the photos or footage to be as authentic as possible. All you have to do is just be yourselves and I’ll capture all the love that you can keep forever. If you are a little shy in front of the camera and would like some help on posing don’t worry… on the day I can give you some prompts that will help you pose more comfortably.
How many images will we receive?
There is no limit on how many images you will receive. On the day I’ll snap away so I don’t miss a glance, laugh or emotional moment. It’s difficult to say how many images you’ll receive because it’s all dependent on the location, the size of the wedding etc but you can expect a minimum of 500 photos.
How long after the wedding will we receive our photos/video?
Again, this is dependent on many things like the size of the wedding and how long the speeches are etc so it can vary. I do aim to get the photos/video to you within 4-6 weeks after the wedding.
Are all the images edited?
Yes! All the images I take are edited with my signature style. I always put a few of the photos in black and white as it’s nice to have some of these too. There is an option to receive all the images in both colour and black and white, just ask about it in your consultation with me.
Can we have a pre wedding shoot?
Absolutely! During our consultation we will discuss this. It’s useful to have a pre wedding shoot which I call “engagement shoot” if you are a bit shy in front of the camera. It’s also good for you to get a feel of how I operate on the day.
What happens if you’re ill?
Don’t worry… I haven’t missed a wedding yet! However, if the unimaginable does happen I’ve got you covered. I will send my trusted colleague who shoots in exactly the same style as me to shoot in my absence but I will still be the one to edit all the images.
How far do you travel?
Anywhere and everywhere! Just because I’m based in Yorkshire doesn’t mean I don’t shoot outside of Yorkshire. I love to travel! I would love to be a part of your day anywhere in the world. However, If your wedding is outside of Yorkshire I will add travel expenses and accommodation (if necessary) on top of the package price. Obviously, if you’re getting wed abroad I will also have to add on flights and meal expenses etc.
Do you have a price list?
To receive a quote please contact me and tell me as many things about your wedding as possible; date, location and which package(s) you’re interested in. This way I can send you an accurate quote.
